A super moon is when a full moon occurs at the same time the moon is at its closest approach to Earth. It makes the moon appear larger and brighter.

Sunday’s super moon is the second of three this year. We had one in July and the last super moon of 2014 will be September 9th.

This super moon is special though, it’s the brightest and the largest of the 3 this year.

If you’ve got any pictures of the super moon we want to see them! You can send them in at reportit@wwlp.com, and they could just end up on our website.
